The video shows three Hispanic men as they burst through the cargo entrance of California Liquidators at 664 South Santa Fe Avenue. Armed with guns, one suspect wore a Halloween mask, while the other two covered their faces with dark hoodies.
The robbery, which took place at 4:10 pm on October 29th was caught on surveillance tape
"The videotape clearly shows how the suspects shoved their gu More..ns into the faces of frightened customers and employees," Lt. Vernon explained. "One customer, a woman, was actually kicked in the shoulder while she lay on the floor, even though she was obeying their commands."
The suspects backed a white or silver Toyota Camry into the loading area behind the store and they left the same way a few minutes later, Vernon said. No one was injured in the robbery.
"Typically, suspects will share information or brag about their exploits," Lt. Vernon added. "We'd like anyone with information to come forward and help us identify them."
